I am Pat. I am here because I have a garden. I am very new to having a garden, but I have had a strong interest in growing things for as long as I can remember. I am very excited to have a garden. I am also a science nerd. I have a PhD in plant genetics. Although I no longer work in academia, I am still interested in what is happening in the scientific world.
In this blog I will combine these passions with my love of writing. I hope that having a blog will motivate me to maintain a consistent level of effort in my garden, and in keeping up with popular science. And maybe it’ll help me find a few people who share my somewhat odd collection of interests too.
I’m looking forward to the journey. And if you find yourself here, why not say hello?
